Waste tires must be dropped off at a solid waste facility permitted to accept waste tires. There are many permitted facilities around the state where waste tires are accepted for temporary storage and then transported to processing or disposal facilities.
A solid waste permit is required whenever tire wastes are stored, buried, or partially buried.
A business must notify of hazardous waste generation if any of the following apply:
The notification form is available upon request or by clicking on rcrapublic.epa.gov/rcrainfoweb/documents/rcra_subtitleC_forms_and_instructions.pdf
A business is required to complete and file a hazardous waste biennial report if the site was a Large Quantity Generator during the past odd numbered year (for example the years 2011 or 2013) and/or if the company was/is permitted to treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste during the past odd numbered year.
Oil generated by do-it-yourselfers (DIY) from personal vehicles can be taken to local automotive businesses where it is added to their used oil. Oil generated as a result of any business activity, including home-based and very small businesses, must be managed through an approved used oil hauler.

Yes. As long as you burn used oil generated on-site or accepted from homeowners; use a space heater manufactured for the burning of used oil; use a space heater with a capacity of no more than 0.5 million Btu per hour; and vent exhaust gases to the outdoors.
When you perform a building demolition or renovation job at any institutional, commercial, public, or industrial building, you are subject to notification requirements and emission control requirements. In addition, inspections may be conducted. Residential buildings having four or fewer dwelling units including houses, duplexes, barns, and other outbuildings, are not required to meet these requirements.
There are a number of requirements that need to be followed. They pertain to type and quantity of material and to the removal process.
Your household medical waste, generally consisting of syringes and needles, can be disposed in your garbage. Prior to placement in the garbage, it is highly recommended that the medical waste be rendered noninfectious, placed in a rigid container, and labeled appropriately. If you have questions about how to render a particular medical waste noninfectious, you should contact the South Dakota Department of Health at (605) 773-3356 for assistance.
No. The Administrative Rules of South Dakota (ARSD) 74:27:07:01 define rubble as "stone, brick, concrete, or similar inorganic material, excluding ash, waste tires, trees, yard waste, and regulated asbestos-containing waste materials". These inorganic materials can be buried or used as fill material without a state solid waste permit.
The common recyclable materials found in household garbage are: aluminum cans, steel/tin cans, plastic, paper, magazines, newspapers, and cardboard. View our Recycling Facilities Interactive GIS Map.
The DANR offers a waste pesticide disposal program. Please contact the Waste Pesticide Collection Program at 605.773.4432 for assistance.
